BTS Makes History By Becoming 1st Korean Artist To Surpass 20 Million Total Album Sales On Gaon Chart
BTS has set a new record!
According to Gaon Chart’s March 2020 album chart that was released on April 9, BTS has now reached a total of 20,329,305 copies sold of their 14 albums, including their releases from their 2013 debut album “2 Cool 4 Skool” to their February 2020 album “Map of the Soul: 7.”
Seven of their albums have scored million certification from Gaon Chart: “WINGS” with 1.13 million copies sold, “You Never Walk Alone” with 1.02 million, “Love Yourself: Her” with 2.22 million, “Love Yourself: Tear” with 2.21 million, “Love Yourself: Answer” with 2.59 million, “Map of the Soul: Persona” with 3.77 million, and most recently “Map of the Soul: 7” becoming Gaon’s first ever quadruple-million certified album with 4.17 million copies sold.
The news was announced officially on April 9, and it was shared that BTS’s total sales first surpassed the 20 million mark on the February Gaon Chart. The group hit the milestone of 10 million albums sold in November 2018, and it therefore took only a year and three months for BTS to sell over 10 million more albums.
A representative from Big Hit Entertainment confirmed, “BTS has surpassed 20 million copies in total album sales as the first Korean pop music artist in history to do so, and they’ve now become the artist with the highest album sales.”
Congratulations to BTS!
